TACOMA, Wash. – A sheriff's official in Washington state says four police officers have been shot dead in ambush at a coffee house.
Pierce County Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer told The News Tribune in Tacoma that the officers were sitting in the coffee shop with their computers when the shooter came in Sunday morning.
He says investigators believe the officers were targeted, and it was not a robbery.
Troyer tells the newspaper "it was just a flat out ambush."
He could not immediately say what agency the officers were from.
male suspect and interviewing witnesses. The coffee shop is near McChord Air Force Base in Tacoma.
"We hopefully will have answers, but there is nothing more we can tell you," Troyer told KING-TV. "That's as cold-hearted as it is."

Still why is it news. Police are mostly murderers. So who knows who they upset.

I thought this type of stuff went down every day in the US, maybe I've been watching too much of The Wire and Die Hard movies

To be honest when I read where it happened my mind flew back to 1984 and the Rajneeshee bioterror attack ... the first successful 'Bio-Attack' on US soil... so I ask why not Washington state for a something big to start?

This sounds like something Los Zetas would do in Mexico. None of the employees or any other patrons were targeted.
Mark my words, until we seal off that border permanently and completely incidents like this will become common occurrences.
